Heroes of Umbra

Heroes of Umbra

Heroes of Umbra is a 2D side-scrolling online RPG in-progress that plays similar to side-scrolling RPGs like MapleStory and Castlevania. Whether you’re on an Android device, a desktop computer, or the OUYA console, online play is platform-agnostic. You can connect and play with your friends anywhere with Internet access, or just solo single-player if you can’t get (or don’t want to be) online.

The game is completely free-to-play and DRM-free.

Minimum system requirements:

At First Glance

At first glance, Heroes of Umbra is a game you can quickly jump into. Using Linux, download it, then open it. That's it. Fun gameplay, but when in sticky situation with monsters coming at you from all angles, the fighting mechanic to me doesn't act quick enough. The music and graphics bring back the old school nostalgia of classic 16-bit games. Fun so far! (More coming soon.)
